1 tablespoon olive oil 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 tablespoon Tabasco sauce 2 cloves, garlic, minced 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 pound lean chicken breast, cut into strips 3 cups coleslaw mix or shredded cabbage 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro 12 small whole wheat tortillas
For the salsa:
1 medium English cucumber, diced 2 medium avocados, peeled, pitted, and diced 1/2 red onion, diced Juice of 2 limes Salt, to taste 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Coat a large skillet with olive oil and place over medium-high heat.
Combine cayenne, Tabasco, garlic, cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl. Toss the chicken strips in the mixture to coat. Place the chicken in the skillet and cook for about 5 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned.
Combine all of the ingredients for the salsa in a medium bowl and serve within an hour of preparing, to keep avocado from browning.
Warm the tortillas in the microwave for 45 seconds by placing in between two damp paper towels.
Place the chicken, coleslaw mix or cabbage, cilantro, and salsa in serving dishes for making the tacos.
If you’re a vegetarian or vegan, you may want to substitute black beans for the chicken. I’m sure it would taste delicious!
Do you serve certain meals on specific days of the week? Pasta is also another dish that I typically serve on Fridays, unless it is a more complex recipe- then it is a Saturday meal.
What an adorable, wonderful idea! It is fun to have little weekly traditions. Michael and I have a Sunday night tradition where we cook steak or fish, have wine, and then watch a movie with popcorn. It’s awesome.
Sundays are usually smoked meat dinners. Mondays and Wednesdays are usually Leftovers dinners – gym nights. I throw in some stirfrys, pasta, tacos, burgers or pizza in as fillers. We are taking a cooking class this week to get re-energized about cooking and look at some healthier options.
